you can do something like this (where out is where you want to write the compressed data):

GZIPOutputStream gos = new GZIPOutputStream(out);
gos.write(string.getBytes("UTF8");
gos.close();

Why is the String encoded as Base64? Doing that inflates the size of what it was originally. The purpose of it is to render binary content able to be handled as a String.
When you compress it in the  manner suggested above, you will again get binary content, which will probably be larger than it was originally.
Are you communcations string-oriented, or binary-oriented?

In that case, you should either:

a. get the byte array before it gets Base64-encoded and compress that, then Base64 encode
b. Base64-decode then apply a. above

If you can post an example Base64 string, preferably attached as a file, then we can give it a try

the code I posted above will encode your string for you.
Do the reverse to decode it

let me know if you have any problems
